Simple wmii

leave a comment »

I love wmii window manager because of 4 reasons:

  1. the way windows are oriented by the WM.
  2. simplicity
  3. less of mouse usage
  4. light weight

After clean installation of Gentoo and wmii, wmii wasn’t working properly. Mod key was set to the windows key, which was not being detected and even after changing mod key to Alt it didn’t work. Probelem was that on Alt+Enter no window was being displayed. Error was in /etc/wmii/wmiirc WMII_TERM was set to “xterm”, which was not enev installed in the computer. I had installed rxvt which is the virtual terminal I prefer because of it lightness. So changing that to “rxvt” solved the problem.
